Faculty undergoing review are required to submit:

  • A two-page narrative describing milestone achievement and accomplishments during the review period and goals for the next review period
  • A current curriculum vitae or curriculum vitae covering the period under review or an Elements report covering the period under review (whichever document faculty submit for this requirement must provide a complete record of their activities and accomplishments for the period under review).

For each faculty member undergoing review, Department Heads are required to submit:

  • Position of the departmental bylaws that describe performance criteria and expectations for rank
  • TNVoice documents for the review period.  Department heads should exclude reports from spring 2020 if the faculty member elected to have them excluded from their performance reviews.

The Office of the Provost will provide the APPRs for the review period.
